Drew Sim (Tees, AB) was the winning goaltender, stopping 37-of-38 shots fired his way, including all 13 in the final frame.
Keenan Allan (Warman, SK) had the lone goal for Rink, while netminder Tyler Brennan (Winnipeg, MB) finished with 31 saves.
The two teams, both in their second year of existence, finished first and second respectively in the regular season standings.
At the end of grade nine, my parents and I decided it would be beneficial for both my hockey and scholastic development to attend OHA the next year. We toured other hockey academies, but ultimately felt OHA was the best fit for me. The coach’s and trainer’s expertise allowed me to learn more about the game, further develop my skills, strength and stamina and readied me to enter the WHL as a competent and confident 16 year old. With the support of great teachers and tutors my grades improved and I made friends that will last a lifetime. I highly recommend OHA for the player who is looking to take their game, grades and life skills to the next level."
